Elvacite® 4348 acrylic resin provides excellent adhesion to substrates when dry and water saturated, and improved creep resistance with a balance of flexibility, hardness, adhesion and outdoor durability. The solid bead resin is soluble in common solvents such as toluene, xylene, acetone, t-butyl acetate, methyl ethyl ketone, etc. Elvacite® 4348 also provides the advantages of low dusting small particle size and no residual VOC. Elvacite® 4348 can be used for concrete, masonry, and many other substrates.
